Real mess
Terrible management, bad conditions. This is not a hotel. This is a hostel. Pictures on the website are different from the offered rooms. During my stay, I felt a strong smell from the toilet drain. If you want a room similar to those pictures, you are charged extra. During my stay, a guy from reception took of his shirt and stayed like that for hours. Area near the pool is very cute, breakfast is nice. On the other hand, I wish I could have my money back.

Really good
The hotel it's a good option if you're staying a couple of days in Rio do Janeiro. The rooms are a bit small, but the staff is amazing and really sweet, and everything is aesthetically pleasing! The breakfast could be improved, but it was really good! It's also very well located

Pictures are not even close to reality
I booked here based on the picures of hotel and reviews. Honestely, i was very disappointed by all. Staff showed me different rooms when i checked in but there were all the same bad. Building was out dated and room condition was just like cheap hostel. Washroom cailing was opened so your partner can hear all you do in there. Windows are very old so i didnt feel secure. Does not lock properly. The only nice thing was staff. I chosed to check-in another hotel nearby although i already paid for this. Refund was not available.

Great location, wonderful staff
I spent a few days in Casa Tuxi, the staff is great, always helpful and checking all the details to make my stay super confortable. My only advise is regarding the wifi which doesnt work in the room and was weak sometimes in the lobby.

An ok place to stay.
We chose the hotel for a-locality and b-cost. It is located in a great location for the metro and walking. The pictures on are nothing like reality though. Breakfast was good. Our room had a bed and a bedside table on one side and a wall on the other. There's nowhere to hang clothes or shelves to out anything on. There's one chair only. There is a fridge though. We were there for 4 nights and although we asked for a change of towels after the 2nd night, and the bin emptied, neither was done in the 4 days we stayed. Wifi in the reception area only; our room had a window onto the passageway and there was a light on most of the night which was annoying. Most of the staff spoke English which was a bonus. You have to ask for a hairdryer if you need one. It would have been nice to have some insight of how to get to everywhere when asked or even before asking. Perhaps an informational leaflet would be helpful. There's a supermarket a little to the left on exiting the hotel which has a restaurant. Excellent pizzas. You order your food, choose the wine or beer from the supermarket and sit at the table. Fabulous - but we found it; no one told us which was a pity. Would we stay again? Yes but. It that room.

2/10 Poor

Reservei um quarto com 3 meses de antecedência. Assim que cheguei, o mesmo estava alugado para outras pessoas e queriam me colocar num quarto de serviço minúsculo sem banheiro, com a trança arrebentada, atrás da lavanderia. Isso por mais de 300 reais. Funcionários bons, mas mal informados e já iriam me cobrar pela segunda vez. Tive que ir embora do local pois não tinham outro quarto e não me realocaram, isso as 22h de uma sexta feira.

Em manutenção
O projeto de inclusão é bem legal e o time é amigável. Por outro lado, barulho de manutenção e problemas durante a estadia. Cama sem lençol, quarto em que o wifi não funciona direito, a luz acabou por um período, a estrutura é antiga e falta manutenção, espaços sempre molhados propensos à proliferação de dengue e alguns outros incômodos que devo estar me esquecendo agora. Se eu tivesse pagado um preço de hostel para estar em um quarto compartilhado, aí tudo bem. Só que eu paguei quase o preço de uma estadia no ibis. Era melhor ter ficado no ibis, inclusive.
